Great place to start your career, but perhaps not to stay over the long term ?

I have been working at GE Global Research

Pros

The work is Cutting edge work and I get to work with very smart colleagues and with great equipment. I also have the ability to go to conferences, publish papers even though I am at company.

Cons

The salary is definitely sub par and the health care benefits are poor. It will cost $$ to have babies at GE, so think twice before you start a family at GE!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

GE is a great place to start one's career but perhaps not to stay. I believe that GE is really well known for their managers and not their engineers for a good reason - engineers cannot grow to the highest levels of the company like managers can.
